Our brand new Weekly Roundup consists of hip-hop and rap, but with a great range of artists and versatile sounds. Let’s dive in and check our top picks for the week…
Track 1 (Hip-Hop/Rap)
Huey V – “After The Deal”
Huey V is a Milwaukee rapper signed to Memphis Bleek “Warehouse Music Group”. His first single “No Regrets” was released on 12/11 and garnered 2500 Shazams in a month. Coming on the scene with a soulfully rigid sound, Huey V is a dive into the artist’s subconscious, exposing a harsh vulnerability that reflects on the darkest of thoughts. His first official mixtape, “Get Well Soon”, detailed a toxic story of self-doubt, grief, depression, alcoholism and violent relationships. With an ear to the streets and an eye for music’s hottest talents, Memphis Bleek immediately signed Huey V to Warehouse Music Group in 2020.
Check out his latest track “After The Deal” and it’s official music video, which was released on YouTube on 3rd February 2022, below:
